The Hidden Sugar In Fast Food

Many menu items at major food chains have shocking amounts of sugar in them, many way above the daily recommended amount. I don't eat at these places but I was surprised.I think you will be too:
McDonald's: artisan grilled chicken sandwich
Total grams of sugar: 11
Percent of recommended daily intake: 44%

Starbucks: grande non-­fat, white chocolate mocha with no whipped cream
Total grams of sugar: 58
Percent of recommended daily intake: 232%
(That's without whipped cream!)

KFC: large baked beans
Total grams of sugar: 61
Percent of recommended daily intake: 244%

And if you're partaking of Jamba Juice's 16-ounce "Orange Dream Machine" smoothie on a regular basis all I can say is "Rest in peace".
